Well that's going to be another 2 mths of Lockdown2 in DanielAndrewsMP Stasi run socialist state auspol Sky puts on Mark Kenny a leftist Trump hater of course . He states the US has the worst Covid stats by far & gets NO retort from Gilbert. It’s total bullshit & promoted by the NEW CNN !! Here are the real stats !!

Perhaps they were in a golf tournament ? Oooops. Living free here in the great state of NSW! lol liberals not following the rules The Premier said this morning that the results from the many tested yesterday has not yet been released. I don't see social distancing here, nor do I see it on footpaths. Bloody terrible.

More testing is more positives, 13,000 tests for 22, earlier in the week ther was 2500 for 5. When you do the numbers, it is about the same and no need to panic but the lefties will pile on! Was not aware we had pangolin processing in Victoria Seriously? 22 out of 13 thousand? A tad over dramatic don't you think

To those panicking, this is because of the clusters in a meatworks and a rest home, not from random general public testing

Coronavirus cases in Victoria climb by 22, including 19 more cases at meatworks - ABC NewsThe state's total of coronavirus cases rise to 1,406, as Premier Daniel Andrews says 13,000 people were tested for COVID-19 yesterday. And Tehan was arguing for reopening schools? It's still obvious too early for anything. It’s too bad the halal meat factory is having an outbreak Plus 2 who were returns from OS and were already in quarantine

Grouse What is happening in VIC? Is it because of the large international Chinese student population? Or is it because Victorians enjoy too many succulent Chinese meals? Please Victorian foodies, eat western and boycott eastern foods. Has anyone checked if the raw meat may have been contaminated by the 19 abattoir workers who tested positive for the virus?

What's that as a pecentage? And what treatment was required? If we do some backtracking with dates, these cases most likely contracted the virus during the Easter long weekend, continued to spread it and here we are today with the 'largest jump'. I wonder how many others didn't bother to test or were asymptomatic.

0.12%. How many critical? 22 people out of 13000. Reflect on the maths before you start to hyperventilate. 22 of 13,000 catch mild respiratory illness Lock down working well then It’s remarkable what happens when you expend the scope of who your testing... Other states should take note.

Elimination of COVID-19 possible in Victoria if lockdown enduresMaintaining the restrictions and border lockdowns could lead to the virus being eliminated, rather than suppressed, epidemiologists say. So after piling on Andrews over the past couple of days, change of tact by Nine Media. I wonder what could have brought this on 🙄 Yes they have been lying Don't overwhelm icus done There is no plan they lack transparency and the laws are stupid with no medical evidence We did this to flatten the curve and let hospitals cope . Total lie . What unrealistic goal does he have in mind ? Total destruction of the economy for some unattainable goal ?

Leftards want to stay home longer

Coronavirus updates LIVE: 22 new cases in Victoria, 19 linked to Cedar Meats cluster; PM will not back down on schoolsBREAKING: Victoria has seen a spike in COVID-19 cases, with 22 new people diagnosed Sunday. That same day saw 13,000 tests being undertaken in the state, the biggest day of testing so far, Premier DanielAndrewsMP says. DanielAndrewsMP Honestly, promoting hysteria by using terminology such as 'spike' is not helpful. Obviously you will find more cases if you do more tests. As a ratio of cases to tests this most recent result would be in line with the recent trend, which is a downward trend. DanielAndrewsMP So you're saying the MORE who get tested, the MORE will show up with the COVID-19 boogeyman? Well fuck me. See why the psychopaths in charge want to reopen schools now? GovernmentIsTheVirus Scamdemic Plandemic ControlledEconomicDemolition 1984IsHere DanielAndrewsMP So if my maths is correct 22 cases from 13,000 tests = an infection rate of 0.16%. But you won’t see that in the headline...

Here’s hoping for elimination. Even Victoria can eliminate it,how about the rest of Australia,the rest of world? What do these doctors of political science actually define as 'flat'? It looks pretty flat. If that is not flat, what is flat?
